I was wondering if I could make a spoon apparently the answer was yes :)
Of course I had to make it look like it grew into it’s shape so it matched everything else I do. I guess I’ll have to make some bowls now to go with it.

Sassafras log scraps and olive oil finish.

I came up with the shape by forming it to my hand.
I make some red cedar knives/letter openers which are molded into shapes which fit well into the hand so I just started with that and kept taking it down until it was thin enough to be a spoon.

Very unique item. How did you hollow out the top?

This looks like an old soldier should be using this, sitting around the fire and shoveling m(scooping?) in the beans. I like it! How big is the spoon?

It is a very unusual looking spoon but I thing that you did a good job.

The spoon is 10 inches over all.
I blocked it out with a hatchet, then a band saw.
The rest is wood carving chisels, a dremel type device and sanding.
